Back in June of 2011, I mentioned my gothic phase to kellychambliss and she wondered if I'd ever posted a picture; she mentioned that she'd love to see one.

I'm not sure I have ever posted one. I don't think I have any pictures from the phase itself (I avoided cameras for the most part), but I have some from the phase immediately after, which still had some carry-over.

16, I think. We did a Murder Mystery; I was Cruella de Vil. Some temporary hair stuff, a fake cigarette, and plenty of dark makeup. It was a great evening! I won best costume. I was not the murderess, as fun as that would have been

Got that dress when I was 14 and still love it dearly. I wore something similar for my junior year picture but I'd have to go scan that. (I would like to scan old school pictures at some point, just to have copies to keep for myself.)

I think there may be more oddball picspams in the works. Even one with a picture of me in my duelling pose. Now, I'm not one to praise my own wand ordinarily, but I have one heck of a duelling pose. Also, a picture of me on a unicorn. I don't tell a lie.

*Smiles.* Thanks! I did have a great time with it. We played the game during the week we rented a house in Virginia; we got out characters before we left, so I was sure to pack what I thought would work. :P Dress-up is still my favourite!

I think my favourite Murder Mystery, though I didn't participate since it was my parents and their friends, was the gender-crossing one. All the men got female characters and all the women got male characters. It was a hoot and a half!

Thank you!

This post makes me want to dress up a bit gothier for some event! I admit it's still something I like to do, although I don't do it often, since I have very little patience for makeup. :B But I think my new (since the picture) long dark hair would help the image, too!

You've got sort of a Sally Bowles vibe going on there.

Yay for the fake cigarette being fake, but the look suits. I think I would have picked you for the murderess, just 'cause you're scary.

Thank you. (: Googled Sally Bowles (you know I live under a rock) and I can totally see it.

Yup, the cigarette was made with a pen, some construction paper, and tape. But it did make a very fun prop throughout the event! I kept pointing it at people, all indignant and/or accusatory.

I think a few people did pick me for the murderess, just 'cause I was scary...and caustic about the whole thing... (Hey, it was in character.)

You look amazing, love!
Too-Busy-To-Watch-LJ JD says so, too!

Very wrong to say, I know, but you remind me of a scary version of Betty Rubble in this dress *g* (but then, I know nothing about 'gothic')

Ahahaha. I like that! And yay, I've never got scary before; that pleases me!

You look smashing, dearie! What a lovely young woman you are, even done up as Cruella. ::g::

Looking forward to more pics (especially the unicorn)!

Awwr, thank you! 'Looked' and 'were', I'm afraid, as I'm no longer 16. (;

Still catching up nice and slow. Catching up on LJ at the moment. Plugging away!

I think it's perfectly reasonable to use the present tense. :-)

Still catching up nice and slow. Catching up on LJ at the moment. Plugging away! Me, too. This is the first evening I've had in more than a week to read people's pages. It may take awhile to catch up enough so that I fell like I can post again, but, as you say: Plugging away!
